They came here in fewer numbers than other ethnic groups such as the Irish and the Scots, and as a result their contribution to Canadian life has been overlooked. Nevertheless, they have made a significant impact on this country, as politicians, journalists, artists and clergy. In this book, Carol Bennett describes Welsh immigration and settlements, discusses the survival ofthe Welsh language and cultural institutions in Canada, and tells the stor y of a numher of famous Canadians of Welsh extraction. This is a celebration of the Welsh people as part of the Canadian cultural mosiac." (from the back cover) Contents : 1.
